SONG OF THE SEAMAN by Tonmoi Das Kashyap

Walking along the sea beach; 
amid the sleepless nights, 
I listen to the song of the seaman 
rhyming with the concert 
of the independent waves. 

The chill breeze 
whispers into my ears 
a secret story of the sea 
it veils and carries 
along its journey. 

The waves cleanse my feet 
play with my fingers,
but my soul ignores,
flow with the song—
a song of solitude
that reflects me.
